Flight: Denzel Washington stars in Robert Zemeckis’ return to ‘live action’ films...

Well I say return to ‘live action’,, but the Motion Capture films Zemeckis as confined himself to since Cast Away in 2000 are live action films, that just happen to look like animation / be animated. So has the man who brought us such treasures as Back To The Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forest Gump and What Lies Beneath retained his touch? (For the record his MO-Cap films were a bit of a mixed bag with ‘A Christmas Carol being terrible and Beowulf very entertaining, but his tech, especially with it being so expensive, just didn’t live up to his expectations and forever making films in that manner just didn’t come to pass.)

“In this action-packed mystery thriller, Academy Award winner Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot who miraculously crash-lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, Whip is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault, and what really happened on that plane?”

Let’s face it, it is always good to see a Denzel film on the horizon, the man never lets you down, even if the film he’s in isn’t worthy. Joinginng hm are the also excellent John Goodman (Who starred with Washington in the underrated ‘Fallen’.) and Don Cheadle.
